Ok, so here's the thing. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the scent of pineapple. But I equally LOATHE the scent of coconut. Finding something that smells ONLY like pineapple and isn't tainted with coconut is nearly impossible. I've been enjoying and loving the "Pineapple Slices" scent body mist that Coconut Hut
Problem is, at $18/bottle now plus like $6 in shipping, paying $24 for one bottle of the stuff is getting to be outside my comfort zone of pricing. So I thought maybe it would be cheaper just to make some for myself. (And ONLY for myself. I'm not looking at selling it, just trying to get my "signature scent" a little cheaper.) Which is where you guys come in.
I googled "how to make body spray" and I'm seeing a wide variety of formulations. A lot of them include things like distilled water. But when I look at the ingredients of my bottle, it doesn't list water. Here's what it says:
SD40B Alcohol, Isopropyl Myristate, Isopropyl Alcohol and Fragrance/Essential Oil
And in the product description it says, "Made with over 55% pure fragrance oil and perfumer's alcohol..."
I really don't know what to make of all this and of course, I'd like to replicate it as closely as possible but googling these ingredients is not clear-cut. For example, I can't seem to find "SD40B Alcohol" except for a few spam sites and a few OLD message board topics of people asking about where to buy it and defunct links. Hrm. So this isn't starting off so well.
I found this pineapple scent
which is what got me started thinking maybe I could make some but now...ugh, I feel like I'm entering Wonderland or something. I have no idea what to think about it and I just want a high-quality, super pineapple scented body spray. Is that so much to ask??
Any help, advice, direction, etc. is greatly appreciated!
